‘Beer can chicken man’

In a time of turmoil even the president attempted to smooth things over a cold glass of beer. So Redskins nation, this beer’s for you. Here’s this week’s tailgating recipe for my “beer can chicken man.”

First, you have to prepare an unfrozen whole chicken by washing it off under cold water. Clean out any contents on the inside.

After drying, brush the entire chicken with olive oil. Next lightly sprinkle with sea salt, lemon pepper, thyme and powdered garlic. Place the chicken in a cooking pan, cover with aluminum foil, and let sit in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

This is a good time for you to prepare the grill for indirect heat. After 15 minutes have passed, remove the chicken from the refrigerator. Take a half-empty can of beer of your choice and place it inside the chicken. Now rest the chicken on top of the beer can on the indirect side of the grill.

Place the top on the grill with the vents half open. Cook for about an hour and thirty minutes. The chicken will turn a crispy brown as the insides are moisturized by the beer contents.

Remove from the grill after the allotted cooking time. Place on tray and let cool before serving.

As always, tune into The Walkons Blogtalk radio show every Sunday from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
